The Royal family are on their way home and according to a monarchy expert, their trip to BC has gone down as a great success.
It’s been a busy eight days for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they toured about BC and the Yukon carrying out more than 30 public engagements.
And while the couple’s two children stayed in Victoria with their nanny, their parents’ hard work has paid off, according to a Royal observer.
Monarchy expert and lecturer of Victorian literature at UBC, Sarika Bose says:
“One of the things that their Royal Highness’s wanted to do on this visit was that they wanted to meet as many Canadians as possible so on that level, it worked very well and I think that it’s provided some respite from the bombardment of sad and frightening events around the world.”
“In terms of their relationship between Canadians and the British, there was a cementing of this image of a happy domestic unit as represented by this family and really again establishing the intention to have a long term relationship far beyond this generation between Britain and Canada.”
Shortly before they jetted home, Prince William thanked Canadians for their warmth and hospitality over the past week.
